[Update: In July, 2013 CurrencyFair has stopped allowing delivery of funds to any Bitcoin exchanges.]

I can add funds to my CurrencyFair account via a bank transfer from a number of countries. This will be a convenient method if I can then send those converted funds as a bank wire transfer to a Bitcoin exchange.

TransferWise used to allow me to do the same thing, but then stopped after their banking partners "weren't comfortable with Bitcoin".

Are there any exchanges which allow this?

Not all bank wire transfers contain the same information so this may vary based on which bank wire network is used.

For instance, CurrencyFair may function as a method to add funds from a UK account (GBP) using a bank wire and then after conversion to EUR make a withdraw as a SEPA wire transfer to BITSTAMP.net, or Mt. Gox, and any other exchange that accepts SEPA transfers.
